You can choose the type of geometry using the switch. Sketch by tapping on the map. There are tools to undo or redo an action or clear everything.

How it works

The sample uses start(with:creationMode:) initializer on AGSSketchEditor. The initializer takes in the creation mode which could be any of the following:

  • Point
